|Note: In 1929, on Sundays, the Mother met a small
group of disciples at the home of one of them. After a period of meditation
she answered any questions raised by the disciples. Portions of 15 of these
weekly talks, which were given in English, were noted down in shorthand
by one of the present; the transcript was elaborated by another participant,
and finally revised by Sri Aurobindo for publication.
The talks, entitled Conversations of the Mother, were first published for private circulation towards the end of 1931. In 1940 they were made available to the public as the main part of the book Words of the Mother. This was reprinted in 1943, 1946 and 1949. In 1956 the talks were published separately (with a short Foreword by the Mother) as Conversations. This book was reprinted in 1961, 1966, 1971 and 1973. In the CWM edition the talks have been given the name Questions and Answers 1929 (and are volume 3).
